Coming next week in Year 3!

Posted by Priory School

Week beginning Monday 3rd July

As part of our Enabling Enterprise project Year 3 will be hosting a Food Fayre on Friday 14th July. Parents are invited to attend from 2.45pm on the Key Stage 2 playground. Recipe books, written by the children, will be available to order together with food samples to try. We look forward to seeing you there!

In our English lessons next week our focus continues to be on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. The children will be using the text to develop their understanding of different characters.  We are planning to watch both of the films; David L Wolper’s Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (rated U) and Tim Burton’s Charlie and The Chocolate Factory (rated PG) over the next few weeks in order to make comparisons with the book.

In Maths we will begin a unit on statistics. The children will be learning to;

  • interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables
  • solve one-step and two-step questions [for example ‘How many more?’ and ‘How many fewer?’] using information presented in scaled bar charts and pictograms and tables
  • understand and use simple scales (for example, 2, 5, 10 units per cm) in pictograms and bar charts with increasing accuracy.

Due to the warmer weather the children are taking off jumpers and cardigans over the course of the day. Please check all uniform is named to prevent it getting lost.

The children have reading books, Mathletics tasks and spellings to learn for a test on the first Friday.

Many thanks,

The Year 3 team.

 

Sports Week

Posted by Priory School

Sports days today and the rest of the week are still going ahead. We are aware that the heat may affect the staff and children so we have shortened the event so it ends sooner, provided gazebos for shade and water for the children to drink. Can we please remind you to bring additional drinks where necessary and hats and sun cream for your child(ren). If we find that the children are uncomfortable in the heat then the decision may be made to cancel the event(s), even if we have started. Many thanks for your support.

Building Update

Unfortunately, due to a delay from their suppliers, the temporary walkway cannot be installed until June 14th 2017. This means that the second route into school, across the field, will not be available until then.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused and please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any additional information. Thank you.
